Research shows that writing about stressful experiences or events reduces the symptoms of people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. The Arizona Arthritis Center, a Center of Excellence at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, is hosting the writing class, Enhance Healing by Writing.

The next 10-week session begins Wednesday, April 11. Irene Lasater, who has been a writing instructor in Tucson and Green Valley since 1990, teaches the class.

No previous writing experience is necessary. However, the class is similar to a support group and participants are encouraged to share their work.
